Panaji:

Amidst concerns over Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar's health, the BJP has asked all party leaders to remain in Goa for the next few days.

The BJP has sent two observers to Goa as it does not want to face any situation in the middle of general election in the country.

The former Defence Minister's health has been fluctuating for several days and worsened on Saturday morning. He has been in and out of hospital in Goa, Mumbai, Delhi and New York since February last year.
